“Tom has presented a topic, normally confusing and mentally exhausting, brought it down to the basics and took the fear out of using the technique. I would recommend his course 100%. He took time out at the end to help correct my issue which was not topic of course. Thank you so much for being passionate and super helpful!” Susan, PT M2 Mayfield Hts., OH 2019

“Covered all your bases.  I wasn’t left wondering: ‘well, what about this scenario’, you already thought of it.  The language made it much easier to grasp very difficult / challenging material. Loved the chronic pain content — so relevant, especially treating spines all day! Lots of new tools in my box!! Thank you!” Student M1 Willoughby 2019

“I took the MET course for Thorax, Cervical and Ribs with you quite a few years ago in Hamilton Ontario. Just want to tell you that the MET stuff rocks, especially the ones for the cervical, thoracic and Ribs! I am actually amazed at how many times I have gotten spectacular results working on the Ribs. My clients are amazed too! Thank you for keeping the courses affordable and for making me almost a miracle worker!” Mia, PT via email

“I attended your lumbar-pelvic course last year and I feel like I should send you a thank you card every time I use your techniques. They are so easy to perform for the patient and myself and they work! I had a patient that I started working with last week that had sciatica pain and was walking a with a limp. The 1st thing he said to me is “I’m only doing PT so my insurance will approve my MRI.” We started with the normal low back ROM exercises, stretching and core strengthening as the PT had ordered. I then had him get on the table and went through the process of checking alignment and found that he had a right up slip. I made the necessary corrections. The guy sits up and looks me straight in the eye says “ what kind of voodoo did you just do?” His foot no longer had pins and needles and he only had mild tenderness in his buttocks. He came in the next treatment and only needed a mild correction and called his doctor to say he wanted to cancel the MRI. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with the physical therapy world!” Luke, LPTA via email
